I am so glad I am alive at this time in the planet's life. Where else in history can you point to where we have all the wonderful things affecting our lives? Modern medicine has given me a clear vision again. Illness is on the run for many, including me this last month. Communications are instant or close to it. We get to know about things from all over the planet in an almost magical way.
Your telephone is allowing us to chat, text or view pictures taken anywhere and anytime. Of course the phone may be changing your cells in your noggin with radiation some say, but we all die don't we? In America we can get in our vehicle of choice (except a Hummer now) and drive to the thousands, maybe millions, of businesses in our country. We can buy things with cash or credit. We all have flat screens and refrigerators. Well, except for some homeless folks.
We have a country that has pretty much defeated poverty. Thousands of programs, funded by taxpayers, for every conceivable want of people. Even if you don't want them they are there. Food banks, methadone clinics, Section 8 Housing vouchers, food stamps, shelters for those without a house. We are quite the country. We do our best to take care of those that can't or won't take care of themselves. Mentally ill people have the same rights as those with a normal noggin!
And yet, another year passes and the planet's people say it is not enough. Or you don't believe in the same GOD as others so you deserve death. Or those in a country of their brethren impose laws and rules and enslave them so they want to travel to a country of freedom. That is America in their minds. People are on the move. It has always been that way. It usually destabilizes a country and eventually ruins it for all. We in America have been generous over the years with immigration. But now we need to stop it for a while. We need to ensure those here are Americans. Not some hyphenated American.
California is a great example of a liberal's wet dream. 2016 looks like the State Legislature and Governor, all liberal democrats are unsatisfied with the level of destruction they have foisted on the people. They want more and more of the people's hard earned money. Even as these liberals cry about poverty and jobs these liberals steal more and more through taxes and fees to fund their favorite dream. They put thousands of dollars on creating a home and then cry there are no affordable houses. Seems they are out of touch with the results of their laws and regulations. Ya think?
The State gets billions to maintain our infrastructure yet complain there is not enough money (review the waste in the State Architects office as an example). They pay for the Bay Bridge three times over and hope we are not paying attention. I remember when the state spent a billion for a mile of road in Century City 30 years ago. A billion! Every single road In Northern California could have been paved for that money. But they have the votes.
California has been in a drought for four years. The citizens are trying to do their best to help yet when they do they get punished. The money going into the coffers of water districts shrinks and so they raise the fees! I and many other have done our best to get the forces in charge to build more storage facilities so we have water in hard times. Nothing new done. (NID is a exception) All these years we have watched as the state gives billions of our tax dollars to the eco non profits that have the politic ans in their pockets. We pay for these non profits to screw us yet if you say that you are just a "denier".
Today's Sacramento Bee Forum Section has a column from a taxpayer eco numskull named Stephen Green. He is the President of the American River Association. See how your hard earned dollars get spent? This fool comes out against the Sikes Reservoir in Colusa County. It is a off river storage concept of a possible million acre feet and this nut, paid for by the taxpayers is against it! I say remove his tax exempt status and send him on his way. These eco scams sap the treasury and do a double whammy on the poor taxpayers. They oppose everything they think will affect their favorite treasures. They belong in a cave. Same for the local non profit eco screamers. They forced the closure of mines, timber and grazing with their unholy connections to liberal government.
Is it any wonder that a goofy guy like Donald Trump is getting all the traction? He is the anti-politician. Not PC or afraid of the liberal media attacks on his every word. People are fed up with the standard political class of leaders (the passage of the Federal Budget as the latest example of tomfoolery). Mealy mouths and liars. A transparent man like Trump is fun and refreshing. He forces the status quo to think deeper. The national press of course is doing their best to elect the most mealy mouth lias in history, Hillary Clinton. She has the audacity to talk about Trump as anti-woman while she attacked and destroyed the women her husband attacked. He is a white Bill Cosby! How can Hillary say with a straight face that we must believe any woman who claims a attack and then have her out destroying those women that her hubby abused and raped!
So 2016 will be quite a year in my view. We will be inundated with many AP stories about how "climate change" guns and other issues are so important. Even though the latest polls say they are not more than 3% on the list of concerns. President Obama will shove more anti-constitutional Executive Orders down our throats with the full support of the sell out press. No wonder there are protesters in Oregon this week. Millions of rules make us all lawbreakers. Get out of the sack and you have broken something. And if they put their sights on you you can expect a anal exam made public before the prosecution. Unless you are a liberal of course.
But this is America. I am a optimistic person so I believe the people will take back America from the usurpers and make it great again.
